Painting, Mix Media, Printmaking
Winter Street Studios
I am an abstract artist living in Austin, Texas. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin with a BFA in Art Education, I taught art for 10 years to special needs students in Austin ISD, and then taught art for 18 years to blind and visually impaired students at Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
Painting, printmaking, and mixed media are my primary creative processes. I work with a visual vocabulary of shapes to tell a universal story. With this vocabulary I approach each new art piece intuitively. I try not to have any predetermined outcomes but see where the work will take me. Choosing to work this way leaves the creative process open ended and leads to a longer period of creativity
